NEW verified Twitch streamer and YouTuber Jidion has been banned from the platform after hate raiding Pokimane’s stream.
Jidon ‘Jidion’ Adams encouraged his chat to switch to Pokimane’s Twitch stream, saying “everyone say L+ Rate” in her chat.
Pokimane, who was streaming Valorant at the time, noticed the amount of viewers spamming the chat and at first thought it was bot.
After realizing he was the victim of a hate attack, Pokimane noted that what Jidion is doing is potentially against Twitch’s TOS (terms of service).
“It’s embarrassing, and if you got banned, I wouldn’t even be upset.
“I won’t apologize. You did it to yourself, man.”
It wasn’t just Pokimane that was harassed – her viewers were targeted by Jidion’s chat as well as using Twitch Whispers’ one-on-one DM feature.
In the end, she had to cut her stream short due to Jidion’s lengthy conversation.
“I think I’ll end the stream. Because the more I can deal with this, I don’t like people from his stream who are whispering to people on my stream.
“I’ll give up on bullsh*t, but I don’t want you guys to give up on bullsh*t.”
Jidion, who just now Verified on Twitch this week, received a 14-day ban from the platform, which he shared on Twitter.
The community spoke out in favor of Pokimane, while Jidion made sexist allegations, accusing her male defenders of only participating because they were attracted to her.
I also changed his Twitter profile picture to the photo of Pokimane without makeup, which happened in rounds a few years ago and also led to the streamer receiving sexist harassment.
Instead of apologizing for the hostile attack, Jidion doubled down, saying:
“I’m not like these other Youtubers defending themselves when someone cheats on me!!!
“The fact that I don’t like her has nothing to do with her gender but with who she is, don’t confuse the two!!!!”
He’ll be back on Twitch in a few weeks.
Meanwhile, Pokimane was also banned by Twitch for 48 hours for streaming episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender last week.
